It was the day the 26-year-old, who may be best known for marrying and later splitting with Kim Kardashian, officially signed with the New Jersey Nets. Anytime Humphries touched the ball during the pre-season match against the Knicks, he was booed. Some chanted, “We Want Humphries!” presumably so they could boo him some more.
Then last night, the part-time reality star was booed once again in Washington while playing the Wizards.
“Humphries getting boos as he touches the ball.Getting booed as he draws a foul,” The Record reporter Andy Vasquez tweeted. “But one guy behind us is on his side, ‘I love you Humphries!’ ”
Somehow, Humphries — who could teach a course in “How to Not Talk About Your Ex During a TV Interview” — kept his cool in both cases, insisting that the booing only made him stronger.
“There might be a little bit more this year, but to me, it’s motivation. People are yelling at you, you know you have to go and perform, go and play hard,” Humphries told the Record (via People). “For me, it makes it a hostile environment and it’s kind of fun to play in that environment.”
Right. Because open hostility sure is fun.
